Hi Freebsd

I have been breaking my head intermittently over this for months, so far I
had no success  getting this Sierra Wireless card ,  to Cingular ISP

This card is 3G card  works on my other winXP partition,  I have become very
uneasy to continue to use this only in windows

because of reliability/security  concerns I want this card working in my
Freebsd OS, I wanted to wean away from windows XP as soon as possible. which
I using  now to access just to connect while travelling, which is too much

My buddy Paul Pathiakis told to post this issue here as someone of you may
have been in same situation.

I added the quircks  for the kernel  and had rebuild the kernal
successfully,  looking as /var/log/messages, makes sense it is detecting the
now I am puzzled how to get this dialled and get it working. he also said we
may need a device driver.

When I called Cingular they said me to use

Tel# to dial : *99***1
password: CINGULAR1

As you see below I tried putting them up these entries in ppp.conf file.

set log Phase Chat LCP IPCP CCP tun command
ident user-ppp VERSION (built COMPILATIONDATE)

# Ensure that "device" references the correct serial port
# for your modem. (cuad0 = COM1, cuad1 = COM2)
#set device /dev/cuad1
set device /dev/cuad4

set speed 115200

set timeout 180                        # 3 minute idle timer (the default)
#enable dns                            # request DNS info (for resolv.conf)

# edit the next three lines and replace the items in caps with
# the values which have been assigned by your ISP.
